Reviews Slaying It (Chicagoland Vampires, #13.5)

  • Jennifer
    Slaying It is installment #13.5 in Chloe Neill's urban fantasy/mystery series titled: Chicagoland Vampires. This novella follows the last book of the series, wrapping up one very important detail: Merit giving birth. It also features a mystery to be solved so it's a well-rounded short-story for interested fans.

    3.5-4 ⭐'s I was thrilled when I saw there was another book (novella) coming out for Merit and Ethan especially when the series was supposed to be over. (Not that I'm complaining...not one bit!)Merit's very preggers and can't wait to get their baby out but of course, that's not all this novella can be about. There has to be some drama and it was as intriguing...and unsurprising as it was brief. But we do get a very wonderful surprise and I can o...

    Cute, as always. Adored the Jonah + Margot tidbits. A bit of an anticlimatic development at one point, but it’s a novella, so all is forgiven. Sigh, I’ll always love these characters. But bring on the next generation!!!
  • Marishka
    SLAYING IT takes place between the last chapter and epilogue of BLADE BOUND.Not quite what I was expecting. I loved seeing Merit pregnant and the birth of Elisa. But I had no interest in Jonah and Margot - none at all. So their parts brought it way down for me. It was basically about Margot's past and then her and Jonah getting together with a side of Merit. Plus why would Ethan allow a pregnant Merit to walk alone and not even have a bodyguard w...

    Eight-months pregnant of the first vampire baby, Merit had a little break lately from all the fights and politics. But good things never last forever and after a kidnapping attempt, Merit and the gang have to find clues about who is this man and why did he target her ?I absolutely adore this series and I'm very attached to all the characters but I have to be honest and say that the plot was very thin. It gave us an opportunity to see a little mor...
  • Suzanne
    So great to get a little more of Merit, Ethan and the rest of the gang. Also, to see what happened after Merit brought Margot and Jonah together. And of course, our first introduction to their daughter! Plus as expected, a little action and mystery to solve. I really miss this series.
  • Keikii Eats Books
    61 points/100 (3.25 stars/5).Merit is pregnant - and just survived a kidnapping attempt. Also, Margot and Jonah dance around each other.How did I manage to get baby ever aftered the same damn series? I should have read what this was about better. I was really looking forward to just Merit and Ethan and the baby Elisa. That isn't what this is about.I swear I saw somewhere that this was meant to bridge the gap between the last book in Ch...
  • Francesca
    Petite novella bien trop courte et dépourvue de vraie tension. Mais c’est toujours sympa de revoir les personnages.
  • Cindy
    5 stars! Chicagoland Vampire series is one of my all time favorite book series. I've seriously missed every single one of these characters. Can't wait to read the first book in the spinoff series, Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland)!

    How are we at book 13 1/2 already? Lordy. I feel old. lol Well, the day has come that fans have been waiting on…Merit and Ethan’s bundle of unexpected joy is about to arrive. However, Merit wouldn’t be Merit unless there was a little drama, mystery, and arse kicking in her journey towards motherhood. As Cadogan House prepares for their princess to arrive, an attempted kidnapping send the house and Ethan into overprotective mode and shows on...
  • Anne - Books of My Heart
    This review was originally posted on Books of My HeartReview copy was received from . This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I purchased all the main books of the Chicagoland Vampire series on audiobook. So when I saw this novella was coming out on audio, I wanted to review it. I bought the ebook previously. It also makes a great lead in to the  the spinoff series first book, Wild Hunger .  It's not neces...
  • Sarah
    Slaying It is a bridge novella that gives us a nice additional epilogue to the Chicagoland Vampires series and introduces us to the youngsters that are going to be picking up the reigns in the new Heirs of Chicagoland series.I love Merit and Ethan so of course I'm always happy to have a chance to catch up with them, especially when she's eight months pregnant and ready to pop. We also get to see how all of our favourite side characters are doing ...
  • RachelW (BamaGal)
    Cute story, but short and inconsequential to the series. This is the kind of epilogue that an author should post on her website or newsletter as a ‘thank you’ to fans who have been faithful through 13 books. Just my opinion...but it was a nice little cherry on top of the series.
  • ClockworkBookworm
    Loved being back in that world. Chloe Neill needs to write more soon.
  • Nancy
    “You might want to get him one of those, too,” I said, and Gabriel just shrugged. “He can borrow hers.” I am so ready for Wild Hunger!
  • Tracy
    This was ok. We get a resolution to Jonah and the kitchen vampire from Cadogan House. (sorry I forget her name...Margot maybe?) Merit is pregnant through this story and by the end of the story is going into labor and has the baby. She and Ethan finally choose a name for the baby....
  • Steph
    I was hoping this might bridge Chicagoland Vamps and Heirs, but no. It’s focus is on Merit’s pregnancy and a match in the making between Margot and Jonah. So, if you’re interested in either or both of those things - read it. If not, skip it.
  • Tanya Davis
    I received this book for free from Tantor Audio in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I was excited that we were going to get at least a small glimpse back into the life of Merit and Ethan. Especially some of Merit being pregnant. We also get some of Margot and Jonah and their relationship.This novella was pretty short but gave us the opportunity to see Merit in a different light...
  • Zareena (The Slanted Bookshelf)
    Wow, haven't picked up any of the Chicagoland Vampires books in a while but this was a nice reminder of what I love about the series!I wouldn't say Slaying It was the best short story I've read, but it was nice to see Merit and Ethan again and I was definitely curious to see a bit more of Merit being pregnant. The Jonah-Margot thread was probably what I was most interested in (because Jonah is just so freaking amazing) and while it was nice seein...
  • Lea Bourg'
    French & English reviewsAHHHH une nouvelle que j'attendais avec impatience =DJ'ai pu voir Merit enceinte, la scène de l'accouchement (!!!) et l'histoire de Jonas et Margot (j'étais tellement curieuse de savoir ce qui s'était passé et de connaître les secrets de Margot et OH PUNAISE j'ai tellement eu envie de tuer Rowan >
  • Eileen Predmore
    This series has been one of my favorites for years. I have loved watching Ethan and Merit in their journey to build a life together, and it has been worth every monent. Chloe has created yet another great story in their lives along with all the rest of the Cadogen cast as support. Can't wait to see what mischievous adventures Eliza gets into now that she had arrived. God help Ethan and Merit. Loved it, ready to read Wild Hunger.
  • Pam
    This was a good, quick fix while I wait for Wild Hunger. I loved being back in the Chicagoland Vampire world. While not necessary to read, it was nice to get more Ethan and Merit, and some Jonah and Margot as well.
  • Pili
    It was quite a short story but I'm glad we got to see Merit pregnant and also that those two got together!! Quite ready now for the offspring's story next month!!
  • Ann
    Loved that we got this little snippet of time with Ethan/Merit, etc. That long awaited green eyed child FINALLY made it's long awaited appearance. Although the ending could have been stretched out a smidge longer I appreciated the opportunity to visit Chicagovamp land one more time.
  • t'irla ~The Bookslayer~ t'irla's Talk Book Blog
    Loved it...want more more...can't wait for Legacy series!
  • Stef
    😫😫😫😫 I love Ethan and Merit so much 😍
  • April
    The Blade Bound Outtake we waited forA final novella for the Cadogans before we dive into the next generation. Was an enjoyable read and nice to see Jonah get a happy ending. Not quite as witty and paced as the others but still satisfying.
  • Rebecca
    This isn't a necessary read for the series, but I enjoyed seeing Merit and Ethan again! I was hoping it would tie into the spinoff, but it didn't. Hardcore fans will enjoy it.
